About How To Basic

The unseen and unspeaking Australian YouTube creator responsible for the channel How To Basic could teach us all a lesson in paying attention, as the common tutorial titles of his videos—“How To Open a Wine Bottle Without a Corkscrew" or “How To Make Iced Coffee"—make it seem like they’re legit, but quickly devolve into a first-person experience of a madman destroying things. In some cases, the insanity doesn’t start until the :30 mark, leading to even more delightful confusion. While his 5.8 million subscribers are in on the joke, the videos are still popular shares for those who don’t know better.
